Exodus is the continuation of Genesis in that we see within it the fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham to make of him a great nation (Gen 12:2), the nation of Israel. To accomplish this, God brought the people of Israel—Abraham’s biological descendants—out from bondage in Egypt through the deliverance of Moses and the plagues that he called down on the Egyptians. Exodus shows how God kept Pharaoh from continuing to oppress the Israelites and from destroying them. The book also shows how God moved the people of Israel into the wilderness to begin the process of developing them into the nation he wanted them to become. This is a reminder that after deliverance comes development. It was in the wilderness, in fact, that Israel would learn to walk with God, trust him, and receive their national constitution, the Ten Commandments. These familiar rules were guidelines God gave the Israelites regarding how they were to relate to him and to each other. God also gave strict guidelines for constructing the tabernacle and placing it at the very center of the Israelite camp in the wilderness. This was to teach the people that he was to be at the very heart of their worship and their lives. Thus, Exodus is a book about what it means to worship God and keep him at the center of life. These principles are at the heart of kingdom living.
